HENRi (2012) – An Epic Science Fiction Short Film
A derelict spaceship becomes self-aware and builds itself a mechanical body in order to feel alive. HENRi is an epic science fiction short film starring Keir Dullea (2001: A Space Odyssey) and Margot Kidder (Superman). Hundreds of years in the future, a derelict spaceship – controlled and powered by a human brain – floats aimlessly in the outer reaches of space. Trapped in the cold metal prison of the vessel, the brain begins to experience disjointed images of its former life – images it cannot understand. Becoming increasingly self-aware, and yet unable to move, the brain devises a plan to build itself a mechanical body from parts of the ship. Maybe then it will understand the images it is seeing. Maybe then it will feel alive.
One of the most intense and beautyful short film i have seen so far. Good job to everyone behind this! A spectacular good movie, superb cinematography, great music and a story with a twist. I can’t think of the words to sufficiently praise this film. Well done!! Henri is played by Keir Dullea from Stanley Kubrick’s movie 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). Supernova was merciful. Everlasting Life would have been painful with returning memories. Tip of the hat to Asimov was the mention of “positronic memory”. For hard Sci-Fi fans, especially devotees of 2001, this is a must see short film in your collection. The film was made utilizing a mixture of quarter-scale miniatures, classic in-camera effects, and computer animation.
